Excessively precise economic analysis can lead to assessing everything in terms of its easily measurable melt value – the value that thieves get from stealing copper wiring from isolated houses, that vandals got from tearing down Greek temples for the lead joints holding the marble blocks together, that shortsighted timber companies get from liquidating their forests. The standard to insist on is live value. What is something worth when it's working?
...the Coleman lantern is the symbol of the camping craze that is currently sweeping America, with its unholy white light burning in the Forests of America.Richard Brautigan
The story of Romulus and Remus being suckled by a wolf is not a meaningless fable. The founders of every State which has risen to eminence have drawn their nourishment and vigor from a similar wild source. It was because the children of the Empire were not suckled by the wolf that they were conquered and displaced by the children of the Northern Forests who were.Henry David Thoreau
So distinguished by a Divine wisdom, power, and goodness, are God's works of creation and providence, that all nature, by the gentle voices of her skies and streams, of her fields and Forests, as well as by the roar of breakers, the crash of thunder, the rumbling earthquake, the fiery volcano, and the destroying hurricane, echoes the closing sentences of this angel hymn, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, the whole earth is full of His glory!
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the Forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?william blake
Finnish Forests: Let us remind the satellite pictures of the 1970’s winter in which the old forest appeared black and young forest and cut downs white. Already then the Finnish borders were like drawn on the map: White Finland between black Karelian and black Sweden. Finnish Forest Research Institute hicced up some time and then decided that the pictures are fake. . .pentti linkola
Russian Forests crash down under the axe, billions of trees are dying, the habitations of animals and birds are laid waste, rivers grow shallow and dry up, marvelous landscapes are disappearing forever.... Man is endowed with creativity in order to multiply that which has been given him; he has not created, but destroyed. There are fewer and fewer Forests, rivers are drying up, wildlife has become extinct, the climate is ruined, and the earth is becoming ever poorer and uglier.Anton Chekhov

Come as the winds come, when Forests are rended, Come as the waves come, when Navies are stranded.walter scott
Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.Anton Chekhov
I met you once. In the Gamma Forests. You don't remember me.
When chill November's surly blastMade fields and Forests bare.Robert Burns
Whoever imposes severe punishment becomes repulsive to the people; while he who awards mild punishment becomes contemptible. But whoever imposes punishment as deserved becomes respectable. For punishment when awarded with due consideration, makes the people devoted to righteousness and to works productive of wealth and enjoyment; while punishment, when ill-awarded under the influence of greed and anger or owing to ignorance, excites fury even among hermits and ascetics dwelling in Forests, not to speak of householders.chanakya
Calculating how much carbon is absorbed by which Forests and farms is a tricky task, especially when politicians do it.donella meadows
Beside The grim old sea-king sits his bride, A sun-land blossom, rudely torn From tropic Forests to be worn Above as stern a breast as e'er Stood king at sea or anywhere.joaquin miller
Here in the United States we turn our rivers and streams into sewers and dumping-grounds, we pollute the air, we destroy Forests, and exterminate fishes, birds, and mammals not to speak of vulgarizing charming landscapes with hideous advertisements. But at last it looks as if our people were awakening. Many leading men, Americans and Canadians, are doing all they can for the Conservation movement.theodore roosevelt
Parish's observant father had once commented to her that Toronto was a city of straight streets and square corners built by Scottish bankers to make money - not to look at the beautiful lake or the wonderful valleys and Forests. He was mostly right, but Bay was a rare exception to the city's linear grid.
Spread across seven hills in the northwest Himalayas among lush valleys and Forests of oak, rhododendron and pine is the capital of Himachal Pradesh that was once the summer capital of colonial India. And today, there is still more than a hint of the Raj in the former hill station of Shimla.
Tiger, tiger, burning bright In the Forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry?william blake
It's whispered that soon if we all call a tune, then the Piper will lead us to reason. And a new day will dawn for those who stand long, and the Forests will echo with laughter.
My garden is a forest ledge Which older Forests bound; The banks slope down to the blue lake-edge, Then plunge to depths profound!ralph waldo emerson
To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and Forests are my cathedrals.
